Integrating Nengo into the NRP?

On 11th March we had the honor of welcoming Terrence Stewart from the University of Waterloo (http://compneuro.uwaterloo.ca/people/terrence-c-stewart.html) at the Technical University of Munich. During these two days, he first gave a fascinating presentation on Nengo and neural engineering in general.
This was followed by extensive discussions with our developers to investigate a possible integration of Nengo into our platform after it had been installed on his laptop. To this extent, we discussed what overlaps already exist and identified missing parts to make this integration happen.
This yields the opportunity for our NRP to offer additional spiking neuron simulators aside from NEST.
This collaboration would be benefitial for both sides, with us offereing a platform to interface Nengo with Roboy or other muscle based simulations.
